Do you think that compressed air is all there is when it comes to pneumatic technology? You might think this, but it’s not true because electric actuators have helped to meld and expand the concept of pneumatic driven components.

These interesting pieces incorporate a 24VDC or similar servo motor. Some technicians have preferred to use parts that are outfitted with a stepper. In either case, the units utilize electrical attachments to work alongside more traditional pneumatic parts

If you’re thinking about deploying this type of configuration, then take a few moments to think about some of the following options from Orange Coast Pneumatics.

Electric Actuator Options For Pneumatic Technicians

Consider, for instance, the LEF series slider type electric actuator. It features a surprisingly low profile height that’s just around 46mm, which can help ensure that it fits into almost any situation. Technicians are free to mount the main body of the actuator without removing a single exterior component. You don’t even have to take off the cover to install it. While you more than likely won’t ever have to move it once you’ve done so, this is great news for those who might find themselves readjusting things at some point in the future.

Think back to a time where you had to fix a pneumatic system once it was already in place. You might not have even been the original individual to design it. When that happens, it can be extremely difficult to get everything going simply because you might not fully understand what the previous technicians were trying to do. If they didn’t leave you any schematics, then you wouldn’t necessarily be able to follow certain lines without having to rework everything from scratch.

By ensuring that you’re working with a component that’s designed with repair and repeated installation in mind, you can help to assuage these concerns to some degree. That being said, you’ll want to keep in mind just how durable these really are. Assuming that you like the position you install them in at the beginning, you shouldn’t find any difficulties working with them for a long period of time.

Those who manage streamlined manufacturing workflows often have to deal with processes that could theoretically be repeated on a near-infinite scale. As a result, they want to make sure that they’re working with something that’s capable of holding up to this kind of work.

Durable Electric Actuators For Your Organization

How many times does your current equipment repeat the same procedure in an hour? Now, multiply that number times the number of hours you work with it per day followed by the number of days you use it in a year. The product you get from this simple business equation is probably going to be staggering. In fact, you might not want to look at it too much if you’ve had to deal with repeated failures in the past due to parts wearing out.

If this struck a chord with you, then you’ll want to give the following statistics a bit of thought. SMC 11-LEFG25-S-150 support guides can handle quite a bit of work and do so in a way that’s conducive to working in almost any business environment that has need of this type of equipment.

It comes in 16, 25, 32, and 40 sized options and offers a mounting pitch of S that should meet the needs of almost anyone who is trying to integrate an electric actuator guide in their existing workflows.

Best of all, you have your choice of stroke sizes in terms of millimeters. Everything from 50 all the way up to 1,000 is offered, so you can find something that provides the right amount of stroke and the right level of power for the exact type of work that your business does.

Since it weighs 0.78 lbs., you can also mount it in many positions and not have to worry about it pulling down on the surface it’s attached to. At one point, electric actuators and their guides had a tendency to be rather heavy. That would eventually cause damage to the surface that they were attached to. As a result, some people started to shy away from them. They even began to develop something of a reputation for heft. This part shatters conventional thinking by providing users with a small convenient module that they can use anywhere.

If you’ve ever thought twice about something because of size, then we invite you to take a second look and give a second chance to any type of component you might have missed in the past.

Electrical Actuators For Every Use Case

Whether you had to deal with issues related to the size and shape of pneumatic or electrical components in the past, we invite you to browse all of our solutions today. You might be surprised at just how far many of these components have come. Electrical actuators are constantly being redesigned, but you shouldn’t ever have to fear that you’d acquire obsolete equipment since any piece you get today would naturally stand up to an awful lot of use as long as you continue to operate it in a manner that’s consistent with its labeling and entirely in spec.

Generate Power From Air Pressure With Orange Coast Pneumatics

Orange Coast Pneumatics works with SMC as a national distributor to provide the kind of parts that people need in the sizes they want. Over time, engineers have been able to develop a myriad of solutions that weigh far less and are much smaller than traditional models. That gives you the freedom to pick and choose parts that would work for your particular use case even if you might have found traditional offerings to be somewhat awkward in the past.

Take a moment to jot down your company’s requirements and any special needs you might be worried about. Once you have, contact us online and tell a seasoned representative about what you’re looking for. They’d be more than happy to help you find all the electrical and pneumatic parts you need to keep your business moving no matter what kind of work you do. Whether you’re engaged in manufacturing or food service, we can help you find the efficient pneumatic components you need to streamline workflows and ensure everything gets done safely.
